Be a star jumper with Edwards
Around the Academy:

Jonathan Edwards gets flying in the sandpit

Hi, I'm Jonathan Edwards. I'm the former Olympic and Commonwealth Games triple jump champ.

Watch my Xchange masterclass

CBBC's Xchange programme gave me a triple jump mission.

And that was to try and improve the jumping of a bunch of young girls.

As you'll see in the video, it's all about speed, strength and agility.

To be a good jumper takes a lot of hard work but it's great fun as well.
